Disney Cruise Line Date Planning Calculator

Disney Cruise Line Important Date Planning Calculator

You’ve booked a Disney Cruise! Hooray! Now you want to know when the booking date will open for when you’ll be able to complete the Disney Cruise Line online check-in process and be able to book those necessary reservations for your upcoming Disney cruise.   This includes shore excursions, some spa appointments (some are reserved after boarding), nursery times (each guest is allowed a certain amount of time, you can add on to that based on availability once you are onboard) and the sumptuous 18 and over specialty dining options like Palo on all 4 Disney ships, and Remy on the Dream and Fantasy.   The problem arises is that it gets confusing; how do you know when it’s your time?   Disney Cruise Line has different check-in dates for various guests to make it a bit more complicated. Castaway Club guests (those who have sailed with Disney previously) have the benefit of booking earlier than other passengers.

  • Concierge level guests: can book 120 days before their sail date, starting at midnight Eastern US time.
  • Platinum Castaway Club members: (those who have completed 10 or more cruises) can book 120 days before their sail date, starting at midnight Eastern US time.
  • Gold Castaway Club members:  (those who have completed five cruises) can book 105 days before their sail date, starting at midnight Eastern US time.
  • Silver Castaway Club members: (those who have completed one cruise) can book 90 days before their sail date, starting at midnight Eastern US time.
  • New Cruisers: can book 75 days before their sail date, starting at midnight Eastern US time.

One thing to note, your cruise must be paid in full to be able to take advantage of prebooking these exciting options.
